ICON RXT 3.0 Rear Bypass Shock: To complete the RXT Rear Suspension System, a new shock had to be developed that could control the suspension throughout this new range of travel, as well as stand up to the off-road abuse that the Raptor would now be capable of delivering. The increase in up-travel was answered with a unique side-mount eyelet approach that allowed ICON engineers to develop a shock that is shorter in collapsed length, longer at extension, and still fits in the factory mounting location. A Dual Hose Recirculating Reservoir (Patent Pending) incorporates a check valve that allows hot fluid in the shock body to be exchanged with cooler fluid in the reservoir. The result of this is the ability of the Raptor to be driven harder for longer periods of time without the worry of shock fade and degraded performance.
Suspension components are key to making sure you car is riding smoothly on or off the road. With upgraded suspension components, you can unlock the full potential of your vehicles performance.
It is recommended that your replace the shocks and struts of your vehicle every 50,000 to 100,000 miles. Replacing your shocks and struts will help reduce your braking distance and improve the overall ride quality of your vehicle. If your are doing some aggressive driving, it is recommended that your upgrade your shocks and struts to a stiffer setup to help enhance the performance of your vehicle.
